Pennsylvania Painting

While on vacation a couple weeks ago I tried my hand at a more traditional painting project by trying to paint a couple scenes from where I was staying at without any tracing or color-cheating (i.e. picking colors from a photo). While the end result isn’t mind-blowing I was pretty pleased w/how they both turned out – considering I normally stick to cartoon/illustration type work.

America First in Clown World?

Description

What’s the point of the “America First” slogan if #FreeSpeech is gone, we’ve lost control of our government and the country’s been turned into a clown world?

Background

Last couple weeks have been pretty rough w/the increased censorship online, immigration going from emergency to nightmare, President Trump seemingly abducted or lulled to sleep by non-MAGA people in his administration and the other usual issues in the news/culture accelerating towards the cliff at break neck speed. I’m not an Alex Jones cult follower but I recognize that his voice being taken away, along with plenty of others is not a good sign at all – especially when the people being banned/deplatformed tell WAY more truth than the mainstream news outlets etc. This isn’t my usual style/approach to artwork but the idea just popped in my head and I just went with it.

God save America … if it’s still possible.

NJF: Harvey Dent

Recent procreate (yet another NJF what can I say … the guy is inspiring)

Related Video Segment

Funny thing about this is that I was 50% into this illustration when he mentioned Harvey Dent on the show. Maybe that was inevitable but I was really freaked out when he brought up an idea I had already started illustrating! Very weird!

Main reference photo of Harvey Dent from The Dark Knight movie. My version wasn’t nearly as cool but hopefully I got close.

Drain the Swamp (2019)

Illustration idea that I recently finished.

Video

I couldn’t resist throwing the illustration into a short video clip to give it a bit more feeling/context. If you watch make sure to crank the volume and go HD/full screen!

America First 2042

I really do have another project I’m supposed to be working on in my free time! But the other day yet another NJFscene popped into my head and I had to attempt it. It’s not 100% what I envisioned but pretty close.

Music Inspiration

By the way here’s the song I was listening to that triggered the idea: “Guidance” by Against the Waves. Make sure to listen past the 30 second point for full effect – and for bonus points listen up to the mini guitar solo at 03:21 🙂

Video Version!

Finally got around to attempting a video version of how I saw the original illustration in my head – using the above-mentioned song too. Didn’t have ton of time but it got close enough I think. As always – go fullscreen/HD to watch it!

AF on Vacation

Nick’s gone for a week for a well-earned vacation. My free time was slated to go elsewhere but my brain/stylus disagreed so we now have another one for the collection …

Perfectionist Notes:

  • I left out the “rs” in Tenders!
  • Image may be too dark … or not dark enough? Contrast of night time was fun but to some might be overkill. Couple examples of dark/light variations:

Part 2

Around the middle of the week I figured I’d do an iteration of the first scene using the same scene …

Saint Nick

Clearly I’ve been on a kick w/this kind of thing lately … no doubt coming from some combination of inspiration, OCD and whatever red/white/black pills I’ve recently consumed. Anyhow, this past week Nick (who’s a Catholic) had a fair number of pagans or atheists send messages to the show and his responses, as usual, were as hilarious as they were spot on. At some point he joked about how he was “fending of the pagan hordes” and that’s the comment that I couldn’t get out of my head and led to this illustration.

President Trump’s Legendary Run for the Presidency

Months ago after I had recovered from making Super POTUS Trump I was toying around with the idea of a new pro-President Trump project – something along the lines of a Candyland-mashup-with Super POTUS Trump characters. Unfortunately I couldn’t get the idea simple enough to make sense (or fit into my little free time schedule) so I just created some artwork around the idea anyway … just out of curiosity of what the related artwork and potential “game board” might look like. Shortly after this my iPad broke so I couldn’t access the artwork so this project just collected dust –
but after finally getting my iPad fixed a few weeks ago I figured I should get this released soon or else it might never see the light of day.

The Video

So … the video below is what this ended up becoming – an “audio-graphical” rendition of President Trump’s legendary run for the presidency! I’m guessing most people who happen to see this will be a bit confused on what the heck it is/etc – but hopefully the above explains the origins sufficiently. If you watch it make sure to go full screen and pick highest resolution you can to see the artwork at the highest quality. And my apologies for the black bars on the side – once again I made a 4:3 illustration in a widescreen world … when will I learn? Anyhow enjoy … and God bless President Trump!

Vimeo/backup link to come if YouTube kills the video for whatever reason.
